Implying that the relationship between employers and employees is the same as the relationship between businesses and the government is a ridiculous notion.
Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
I say, get rid of them. So what, maybe we pay a little more for bread.
Unemployment benefits are paid for with a business unemployment insurance tax. It is an employee insurance. Don't consider such things a subsidy.
Maybe you should look up the definition of "subsidy" before you continue of such false statements.
Military... That's part of their benefits package. Commissary prices aren't subsidized. There simply is less profit involved. No profit actually.
I do want to open that can of worms. I get even more severe than that because I am intolerant of irresponsibility that requires the use of tax dollars to subsidize with. One of the biggest problems I see is women getting pregnant with no ability to pay for the costs. It has even become financially preferred to have a baby every three years to retain the highest level of benefits. My solution is this. If someone conceives a child when they are in no position to support the child, then if they want government benefits, both parents must get their tubes tied. This is a preventative measure to insure that neither parent can burden the system a second time for the same type of irresponsibility.
Now contemplate that idea for a bit...
If I don't respond to you, maybe I'm tired of nonsense. I don't need the last word like some of you do.
If they were going to close their business they would just close it. They wouldn't whine or make demands.
Most entrepreneurs wouldn't consider it a war in the way Hank Reardon described. Entrepreneurs are stereotypically cursed with razor sharp focus and ignore all the externals. Whining like a little girl isn't even on their radar of priorities.
It Atlas Shrugged there was a consolidated disappearance of all successful people. Even though it wasn't literally a conspiracy the message of Ayn Rand was pretty clear. "Stop striking. We can do it too." Unions are very hard to organize. They are almost non-existent today. Entrepreneurs would be even less organized than workers. If they saw a chance to break from the conspiracy to quit then they would see an opportunity for their business during the intermediary stages.
Ayn Rand's message isn't a realistic warning in the pure sense. Atlas Shrugged behavior is administered all the time but it's administered in isolated circumstances. Businesses will never organize against labor. They may leave for greener pastures but it won't be an organized effort like the book implies.
